Don't follow the directions through this app. Thank God I was driving a Jeep, even then I had to get out and look and make some assessments as to whether I needed to turn around. Take Crabtree Rd out to gianelli and skip going through Dodge ridge. yikes. It was super pretty and a good adventure though. Def would recommend for a short lil hike with the kids.
Also this is labeled as lightly traveled and on a Monday I seen probably 15-20 other hikers. I would say that's at least moderately traveled.

Be aware gate at the fire road entrance was closed and locked. Over 5 mile hike to get to the trails head . Not bad but not what I had time for today. Disappointing.

Beautiful hike. Easy to get to the higher elevation and continue on to Powell lake.

Stunning views. Lots of switchbacks and elevation gain but trail is well marked and maintained.
